Join me for a ride down memory lane to understand where Umbraco came from and why and where we're heading today. A good combo of awful looking screenshots of the early Umbraco UI, the horrible first db schemas and all the way to some exclusive things to be unvealed at this wonderful day.
CMSImport V1.1 should be ready by the time the UK festival starts. In this session we will have a look how CMSImport can help you with importing your data from various data sources into Umbraco. We will also have a look at the new features that makes CMSImport a more reliable and the most flexible import solution.
This session is about how you, your customer and your customers customers can benefit from using a Content Delivery Network (CDN). I will briefly talk about the various options (Azure, Amazon and Cloud Files) you have to choose from, what the implications of using a CDN is and how it can be integrated into Umbraco for an all round beautiful setup.

Integrating 3rd party systems with Umbraco
Umbraco 5 is going to become the Umbraco you know and love on the outside, with a leaner body on the inside. In this reasonably techie talk I'll go through some of the architecture choices, and I'm sure at one or two points there'll be Visual Studio and a browser up on screen to show everyone progress so far. It's early days so we'll be looking at the concepts in progress, but Umbraco 5 will be pluggable to the nth degree, so this talk will give a bit of insight into where things are headed and how we're going to get there. For anyone interested in how we maintain a global team I'll also give a quick insight into how we organise the project and explain about some of the upcoming milestones for the rest of 2010.
